Agreed.  I don't see a problem with citing the Git commit itself, as Git
commits are just as useful for provenance/reproducibility as DOIs, and both
of the services you list above require you to license your code to them (if
you are depositing the code, as opposed to just providing a Stodden-style
compendium).  Figshare, the last time I checked, required CC BY licenses,
which aren't particularly code compatible.
